Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine.  It takes a look at those books we are looking forward to seeing published and can't wait to read.  It's also a great way to see what other books other readers have discovered in the publishing world we may not have seen or heard about.

Reckless (Reckless, Book 1)
by Cornelia Funke
Release Date: September 6, 2010

For years, Jacob Reckless has been secretly disappearing to another world, a world behind a mirror, a world for which his father abandoned his family.  The mirror world is Jacob's escape from reality.  It's a place for treasure hunts and magnificent quests.  A world where witches haunt the forests and giants and dwarfs roam.  A world locked in a deadly war.

Jacob's secret seems safe, until one day his younger brother Will follows him, with disastrous consequence.  Faced with a curse that is quickly turning Will to stone, the Reckless brothers are thrust into a race against time to find a cure before Will is lost forever.

Among The Ghosts
by Amber Bensen

According to the author's own words, this novel is a "spooky boarding school / cool girl heroine / ghost story."


  1. I've never heard of either of the books, but they both look cool, especially Among the Ghosts! Great picks :)
